" It's Cole." He laughed.
"Mag-isa ka?" Tanong niya.
"May kasama ako. Ikaw, anong ginagawa mo dito?" Tanong ko.
"Susunduin ko ang pinsan ko. She's with her friends."
"Aw, sweet cousin." Ngumiti ako. He seems like a nice boy. Ngumiti siya at napakamot sa batok niya. He seems shy though.
"Well I gotta go. See ya around." Tinalikuran ko siya at nagsimula nang maglakad.
"See ya. . . Iris." Liningon ko siya, pero nawala na siya sa paningin ko. How did he know my second name?
"Etty!" Natanaw ko si Michie sa malayo. "What are you doing? Tara na!"
We entered the salon and did the usual hair and body treatments. I needed this a lot. Masyadong nang marami ang nangyari sakin ngayong linggo. I need a break from it all.
"Uwi na tayo Michie." I said finally. Kanina pa kami naglilibot sa mall. She got tons of clothes already.
"One last store please? I need to buy a lot of sweater for my trip to London!"
Sumunod ako sa kanya. Nagsimula na siyang mamili ng damit at umupo naman ako sa couch. I felt my phone vibrate kaya chineck ko kung sino ang nagtext.
Napalingon ako sa paligid. Wala namang akong makitang Axel.
Are you stalking me?
I don't do stalking, baby. I'm too handsome for that ;)
This arrogant troll! Hindi na ako nagreply. Hinayaan kong ang cellphone ko. After the 20th sweater na naipakita ni Michie sakin, she finally decided to buy 4 of them.
"Can we go home now?"
"Yes!" With satisfaction in her voice. Madilim na sa labas.
"Did you bring your car?"
"Hindi eh." She shrugged. "I texted Kuya kanina. I think he's here"
"Ladies," Speak of the devil.
"Ang rami naman ng pinamili mo Michie." Reklamo ni Axel.
